The Yarn

When we showed up at Indian Market in Santa Fe I told Xander, I am not going to buy the first thing that I see. But as soon as we walked into the Sovereign Santa Fe show of course the first thing I see is screaming my name. I did a slow lap but couldn’t get this beautiful piece out of my head. I chatted with Kristin and learned that it was inspired by the heirloom seeds that her Grandmother had brought with her during the relocation to Oklahoma and Kristin was planting some of those seeds for the first time.

For the yarn we used a 65% Super Baby Alpaca, 35% Extra Fine Merino for an extremely lux base. This has 328 yards/100g. There were so many colors represented in this specific painting that we wanted to get a touch of them all. We hope you love Kristin’s work as much as we do!

We paired this month's yarn with some beautiful Oh Dang and Mighty Mo colors.

Slide 1: Paired with Come and Get Your Love Slide 2: Paired with Everything's Copacetic Slide 3: Paired with Sunday Mimosa Slide 4: Paired with In a Jam Slide 5: Paired with Lulu Slide 6: Paired with Fugitive

With every month in the Indigenous Collective you can order more of the colorway in the listing below. Please know the preorder will end February 7th and ship mid February

  • Sometimes, upon first glance, I do not love the colors of the club yarns. So I set the yarn on the table next to where I knit and let it “settle in” for a while. Eventually, I start to see new colors or blendings of colors and possibilities in the fiber. The inspirational art is always an “Ah Ha!” moment. Thanks, Candice!

  • The serene colors took on a wistfulness when I read about the origin of the seeds. Carried a long distance and re-engineering into the family’s life! The art embodies hope. And I’m overjoyed to be sharing in the beauty of the seeds. The yarn lovely. I’m thinking of incorporating it into a shawl. The art is amazing! Story is touching.
